Thursday 19 April
Atlanta Southern Group Dinner
Historically, juke joints were a critical part to African American’s leisurely lifestyle in the South. At the end of a long work week, they would unwind and laugh their troubles away with others at the local juke joint. Experience a little taste of African American history as we sit back and relax while listening to live music and enjoying impeccable soul food cuisine at Sweet Georgia’s Juke Joint.
Saturday 21 April
ICMA Innovation Awards Gala Party at the Capital City Club
Atlanta is a city full of remarkable history that has made huge impacts on its local community and the entire United States of America. On 16 April 1883 more history was made within the local community when the Capital City Club was founded. The club’s mission, which still stands today is to “promote the pleasure, kind feeling, and general culture of its members.” As being the center of Atlanta’s social hospitality, the club has welcomed many leading business men including three USA presidents.
Join us in experiencing Atlanta’s true southern hospitality as we begin the evening with drinks and a three course dinner and find out with anticipation the winners of the 2012 Innovation Award. Finally we will conclude the evening by dancing the night away. Please note there is a nominal fee of €130 for gala party tickets.
